Hurrah for the Red White & Blue!!

I'm a huge fan of red, white, & blue ~ have used it for my color scheme in our gameroom, also use red in my dining room, but since my digital camera is being finicky today (couldn't be MY fault, could it?) decided I'd post a few of my fav pics from the HGTV website. They always have great decorating ideas, & this holiday is no exception.

I love glitter glass!
The picture below is from a great episode of HGTV's ROOM BY ROOM. Sherry & Matt re-decorated a young boy's room with a nautical theme, then decided to go patriotic, too, & made an easy & unique flag headboard.

~ Patriotic Floral Arrangement ~ Wish I knew how to quilt!
~ Sparkly Pillows ~
~ A clever Uncle Sam made from paper towel tubing ~I hope to get my camera going again soon so that I can show you some of my little patriotic goodies. Hope everyone is getting ready for a safe & happy 4th!
Hugs,
Stephanie

Steph, LOVE this post. I have an Americana bathroom downstairs. It's a LAZY thing as it started when we first moved in here three years ago as Memorial Day decorations. Then Fourth of July decorations and I never took them down.

When are we going to see your Gone with the Wind collection? I've really been looking forward to that. I love that era!

Wow Stephanie! What neat ideas! My husband is very patriotic and loves anything red, white and blue! He is finishing the basement in the spring with a game room/family room for he and the boys and these ideas would be great for that! Thank you for posting these, I will be referring back to this for sure!

Happy 4th! Hope you have a wonderful day tomorrow!

Hugs and smiles,
Amy

Your title should be "hooray for the red, white and EUUUUU"

I have the flag banners and such on the front of the barn and porch...

You'd be proud of me.... I am very patriotic for a month!
